Week 1 Wed&Fri: Vristavella

Vristavella has joined Cedric and Fumblehop’s party to investigate what is happening to her swamp and the lands around it. The party managed to infiltrate the swamp bandit’s lair and set the slaves in the lair free.

To her surprise, the lair sat on top of a knot of magical leylines and a powerful portal. Vristavella managed to open the portal, and while they were travelling, Vristavella had strong visions of seeing the ruins of Saintrest overrun by zombies and looked over by a large black dragon known as Alanoei…

Upon arriving in Swamptallow the demon market, Vristavella marchs forth and in a queenly fashion, engages Tingly the demon merchant in a card game with the freedom of the human slaves at stake. Vristavella sees through Tingly’s attempts to cheat not once, but twice, and Tingly the demon merchant admitted defeat. However, just as Tingly turned to walk away from the party, Cedric, overcome by rage, rushes forth with his sword to try to smite the merchant…

Week 1 Wed&Fri: Cedric

On this journey of self-discovery with his best friend Fumblehop and the Swamp Witch Vristavella, Cedric is finding himself more and more inspired to do good, recovering a little from his disillusion. Fumblehop has shown Cedric full support along the way, and is very glad that Cedric seems to be looking more like himself.

The intrepid party managed to infiltrate the swamp bandit fortress where they rescue more human slaves. In the fortress, Vristavella manages to activate a magical portal, which brings them to the demon market of Swamptallow.

In Swamptallow, Cedric grows increasingly angry at the treatment of the people of his homeland. How much have they lost? What have they done to deserve such treatment? Why wasn’t I here! Filled with rage and an urgent need to right these wrongs, Cedric charges at the demon merchant Tingly with his sword raised. Just as he is about to strike…

Vristavella, Witch-Queen

Signature Abilities: Imperious Glare (Social), Witchcraft (Mental)

Vristavella is an immortal Witch-Queen, who ruled over an ancient city that is lost to the depths of the Murkglade Swamp. A sorceress of immense skill in the arcane arts, who prefers to spend her time exploring the vast cosmos, Vristavella prefers to ignore others, and be ignored in return. However, the Witch-Queen now feels compelled to return to the world of mortals; the nearby town of Saintrest has been conquered by demons, and Vristavella has no wish for the Murkglade Swamp to be similarly overrun. Spurred to action by equal parts annoyance and curiosity, the Witch-Queen travels with Fumblehop and Cedric to Saintrest. (When they were boys, they were polite to her, and so she remembers them well – not necessarily fondly, but without an excess of irritation.)
